Soup's On! And its Tasty!

Actually it is Delicious!

Just have a look at what my Beadsoup partner Susan has sent me! M is the word... MAGNIFICENT!

It is an amazing selection of beads, ribbons & cords and not one, not two but FOUR different Focal pieces to play with. The hand-etched copper clasp is just amazing. And her generosity in the amount of beads she has sent is quite humbling. I don't think I sent her enough!

But she says she likes it and I am eagerly looking forward to seeing what she creates from it.

Just look at what I have to play with, so many different colours and media!

Read what Susan thinks of my soup.





And now I can reveal the soup I sent too!

It includes:
- A selection of pearl and shell beads in Yellow, Orange, Green and Red.
- A small selection of Felt beads that I made using the technique felt artisan Eve Marshall taught me.
- A selection of pewter and Tibetan Silver beads
- Yellow Organza ribbon.
- Kumihimo braid made with Chinese silk cord.
- Tibetan Silver Clasp.
- Handmade Silver plated copper wire flowers.
- Tree of Life focal piece made with freshwater pearls and silver plated copper wire.

And I really can't wait to see what this mish-mash ends up as :-) I am sure it will be very very special! Watch this space people.

  1. You sent me lots of stuff - plus, you made most of it by hand. Glad you like everything.

Diary Date: 14 June 2015 - Meet Christina Stevens at Stamford Arts Centre

Christina Stevens: Artist in Lincolnshire working mostly in ceramics. "Most of my work is hand build, coil, pinch, and roll as well as other construction methods, often utilising formers to help support the clay until it is firm enough to support itself. I have a variety of press-moulds as well as sprigs and 2, 3, 4 piece plaster moulds I have made myself ( these are used mostly for slip-casting the ball jointed figures’ arms and torso.) I also use found objects, lace, plants and windflowers pressed into the clay to provide detail and pattern."  Read More via Christina Stevens « ESC Artists .

Broadband Outage

If its not one thing its another. No internet this morning. Apparently there was a broadband outage all over the country (even though I seem to be the only one who did not have internet!) Just got it back. I tried to use my mobile phone to go on the internet. Bah! I don't know how people do it! I did not like the experience which just made me more and more frustrated. Another Grrr moment! And before that I was woken up at about 4.30 AM by the phone. Strange time for a call! It stopped ringing by the time I got to it and they did not even leave a message! Anyway... Just felt like a moan! Now I feel better :-)
